  3. Brian, I have a 2002 183 ss, I ordered my bimini at the end of the summer last year from boatcoversdirect.com. Its a Caver bimini top and I went with the Sunbrella material and the stainless fittings. I also added the stainless support poles for the rear so it is more sturdy and that way it will free stand when closed. I have not installed yet, should be on in a week or so, I will keep you updated and I can post pics of it once im finished.

  6. I have a 2002 183ss with a Merc 4.3 Yesterday i has spring fever and went out and installed a new radio in my boat. After installing it was dark out but i needed to try it out. Like i said it was dark out and i was rushing, I threw the battery in proceeded to connect the battery cables.

  7. Hello Everyone, First off HAPPY EASTER!! Next, I'm just looking for a general consensus from everyone on here... I bought a 2002 183SS this past summer off my uncle, the thing is MINT. Only reason for him selling it was he just bought a huge RV and had no time for the boat. First time I dropped it in the water I had a little water in the bottom very slow/small leak that the bilge kept up with. Took it back out on the trailer and sat that my shift cable bellow was shot. Luckily it was the end of the summer so I just threw some silicone on it and used it a few more times and packed it away for w

  10. Hey guys im new to this forum. I have a 2002 183ss and this summer we were out on the lake and the anchor door latch handle broke and the door was stuck in the closes position. After looking at it for hours trying to pry it open, i was forced to break the latch handle. During this, I chipped the fiberglass and it looks like garbage. I know i can get a fiberglass repair kit but does anyone know where i can get a new door. I attatched pictures off the chaparralboats.com "PARTS IDENTIFICATION GUIDE INDEX" http://forum.chaparr...at/2002/183.pdf It looks like i need #1 (183SS Anchor Lid) Part
